Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This resort was not what we expected for the price. On arrival the staff at reception were rude and not welcoming, not willing to answer our questions about breakfast. The bathroom was nice but the bed was really hard and uncomfortable. Our room wasn’t cleaned for the whole 4 nights despite us NOT putting a do not disturb sign up, the bins overflowed and as you can’t flush the toilet paper it had to go to the bin in the bathroom causing it to smell. Our room key card didn’t work well (room 403) took ages for our room to lock and open, we told the receptionist and they sorted it but it happened again straight after getting a new one. The pool had lots of debris, not even sure if it was cleaned.

It's in a nice area with lots of cafés and restaurants. It has easy beach access and the beach itself was pretty.

You can get a massage at the beach (very good) and there's a restaurant. Staff at the restaurant wasn't really pleasant, but the food was really good.

You can tell it used to be a very nice resort. But it needs maintenance. A couple things were broken in the room, like the towel rack and the hot water.
There are a lot of bugs outside (mosquitos) and inside (ants, roaches, millipede - ended up in my bag somehow unfortunately - and mosquitos). It was not very clean. The sheets had stains and towels too. When the room was cleaned we didn't get clean sheets, just towels. When I used the water boiler for coffee (free), it tasted kind off 'dusty'.
The mattress of the bed was nice.

The airconditioning worked good. There was also a window.

The wifi worked good, but you had to log in every time you came back from the beach.

As it was a national holiday in Thailand it was quite busy, but it was nice and quiet.

The minibar was empty, but instead we got 2 water bottles for free each night on the porch.

The receptionists were kind.

There is also a laundry service, which was good, but down the street it's cheaper.

There is a free taxi to the pier.

The pool was a little dirty and the jacuzzi didn't turn on.

Overall: location is good, receptionists were helpful and kind, it needs a little maintenance and cleaning, b

We had a really bad experience with this resort, we arrived in the resort and they didn’t have our booking. We’ve booked via booking.com and apperantly the room we booked wasn’t available anymore. They gave us the option to cancel our booking, but almost everything was sold out on the island so we didn’t then he said they have a different room for us. The room was horrible it was next to the reception and wasn’t even a room, it was a classroom where they had put some beds, it was horrible and the beds weren’t made (we arrived at 16.30). When the beds were made they also forgot to give us blankets and we had to ask foe them ourselves at recption also the airconditioning was really cold so we asked for the remote, but they didn’t know where it was and didn’t help us. Also the shared bathroom was gross, there were flies everywhere and it didn’t have any toiletpaper. Even though we got a room they just last minute set up we still had to pay the full price which I found really weird and also too much for what we got.

Lovely hotel, Room 303 which is in a block of 5ish rooms with direct pool access. Rooms have everything you need: TV, Kettle, hairdryer and are immaculately clean with Terrace or Balcony. The on site restaurant is good and is located on the beach. Staff are nice. Busy area with plenty of great restaurants and shops. I'd definitely recommend this hotel and reception can organise all the tours/taxis or diving programmes at very reasonable rates. I believe they offer diving tuition on site

we originally booked for 4 nights, but we couldn't stay for the first night. we tried several times to contact the hotel to explain that we would not be there for the first night but still would be there for the remaining three nights - they ignored our emails. when we requested a change to the dates through booking.com the hotel refused to accept a change to our booking. in the end we had to cancel the original booking and rebook for three nights paying in full. The hotel has kept half of our original booking payment – THB 8376 / £185!!! we spoke to the hotel about this when we were there and they promised that they would sort it out, but they have not!!!

Location is good, breakfast is ok.
The pool area is dangerous with the decking not level - see photos. The main pool was ok, but the others were dirty.

Booked three beds in the 6 person mixed dorm room advertised on booking.com. On arrival we paid (initially I paid local currency which worked out cheaper for me, but the lady at reception said it would be cheaper to may in my own currency, so she refunded the transaction straight away and took the amount in GBP - which was more than I had paid in local). We were then shown to the room - which was not the one we had booked, it had 10 beds in it, no lockers, a smelly toilet and shower. It was not clean. I asked for the room to be refunded as we were going to stay elsewhere and she said no refunds are available, as it was a non-refundable room. I asked where the room is that we had booked and showed the pictures and they explained it was fully booked. At this point the lady said she would refund the room and just put the request through booking.com and she will do it straight away.

As I type this I have only just received the refund but booking.com have had to pay me as Seashell Resort have failed to refund or communicate with booking.com on the matter.

Terrible attitude and service from start to finish when dealing with us.

Overall the place was run down and not as advertised.

The hotel would have been fabulous before covid! But it has been left devastated. The gardens, the pools,the hotel itself you can tell has been left without much upkeep. The good news is , I’m sure it will get better. The rooms are very dark and the bed is the hardest I have ever slept on. I actually had to look to see if it was a real mattress we were sleeping on, it was! Pools Could be great but no cushions on sun beds and none of the umbrellas worked.

We were at the back of the resort. A dark room. Cold shower. TV from the 70s. Bed so hard and the pillows. The advertising picture are of a small block near the beach however you are not offered these rooms. The swimming pool has a lot of boards up which could be dangerous. A very dated hotel that needs some serious investment to o bring it up to scratch. Won't return until then

Not the best hotel in Koh Tao. We ended up there because it was the only available one during the full moon party. The place is far away from the party or the port. They did have a free shuttle service, but to go from/to the hotel it's not an easy road. Very downhill. The beach at the hotel is nice! And the hotel has some hammocks and a nice view but it is really not clean (rooms or pool were dirty, rooms had lots of red ants). I slept in one of the hammocks, but watch out for mosquitoes. Overall, it's a place with great possibilities if the owners took a bit more time to restore it and keep it up.

On booking.com you see this lovely shot of the sea from the infinity pool of the resort described as “ beachfront “ but it isn’t :( they built a dive shop in front and a restaurant so you can’t see that view from the pool.

The place is run down and the management have invested close to nothing on revamping after the covid period.

Our room was dank , dark and stinking of mould . Walls were dirty , in desperate need of painting.

Bathrooms were below standard from an advertised 3 star ranking . TV was so old it didn’t even have a USB port !

Who ever installed the doors to the terrace did so with a nice gap, perfect for mosquitos from the rubbish piles left around the property to enter ! Meanwhile the door screech when you open them . Sorry neighbour .

To top it all it’s duff duff from
The nearby bars and clubs til the early hours 🤦🏻

If you like a rock hard mattress ave poor sleep here’s your place .

We checked out after 1 night and moved to the south side of the island . Much better 👏
